Q: Underglow Laws

asked by on

I am wondering what laws I need to obey when adding underglow to my car, like color restrictions, location restrictions, etc

My car has 182000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello. Laws related to underglow or aftermarket lighting in general will vary depending on where you live. I would recommend visiting your county courthouse to determine whether underglow is legal in your county. It is unlikely that underglow or aftermarket lighting would be illegal statewide. If you find out that it is legal in your county, that should be good enough.
